Employee Engagement: Myth or Magic?

Employee Engagement: Myth or Magic?
Lunch & Learn – pre-registration required

We often hear statements like:

  • “We can’t seem to get our employees involved”
  • “We need to get our employees on the same page”
  • “No one seems to care”
  • “Our employees seem to have their own agenda”

Getting employees engaged takes a lot more than simply wanting them to be engaged. The task is a function of cultural change and changing culture can be hard work, but it doesn’t have to be. Mr. Higbee will use real life stories and experience that will help make your journey a little easier and much more likely to be successful.
